Rafael a.k.a. Silks is a Brazilian graffiti artist from São Paulo City. The artist’s hectic work was birthed by the loneliness that pervaded his childhood. Silks work, though often inspired by this singular feeling, is never homogenous. Affected by the urban textures from the city which vary with time, his dense work is an unending trail of colors, that intersects between macro and micro schools of art.
From the walls to the canvas, Silks uses a consistent technique involving layering.
